Carlos Solis is graduated with Associate Degree in Graphic Design.

Carlos Solis started painting artistically in the mid-nineties as a freelancer specializing in nature, fantasy, spiritual and conceptual art.

He works in a variety of illustrative media; such us, digital, oil, acrylics, gauche, mixed media and pencil. He also enjoys producing works of decorative art such as murals.

Carlos loved art since early age; he showed signs of an active imagination and a growing creative ability. With his love for animals and cartoon characters, Carlos always thought to be a cartoonist and a wild life artista! But his vision expanded through the years by bringing cultural perspective and an effective vision of more complex and ultra-dimensional presence in his paintings.

Carlos Solis
Artist Statement


In my infinite world of my imagination, I tried to convey and stimulate the mythical and spiritual elements of visual expression. My passion in painting started with the magnificence elements of nature, fauna and flora, and it’s natural beauty that involves it’s selective conditions. For example, the majestic animals of the Amazon or Indians from Venezuela (Guajiros). However, I always try to expand my work to other areas of reality and with a spiritual meaning; therefore, I, occasionally, have the tendency to go from one extreme to another in order to explore, and show the ranges of styles and techniques by creating the most beautiful and delicate components of life to the most complex and strange art.
Fortunately, I have the pleasure and the opportunity to experience the richness of many cultures in South and North America, which allow me to expand my imagination even more; it also helps me to understand the differences and similarities of both worlds. My work reflects the distinctness of my artistic perception from those experiences, which provides vivid colors and physical details in order to make something visually pleasing, grotesque or unfamiliar to look at. Furthermore, I also try to create an awareness and express an opinion about our delicate habitat and lack of knowledge about cultural and racial diversity in S. America.
